Rating from 7 Reviews Two step gym graft procedureRia, South Africa, 21 Aug 15

Dr Abram was a saving grace in my instance. I had a previous botched gum graft surgery with scarring when I went to Dr Abram. He knew exactly how to treat me and told me from the start that I required a two step gum graft procedure. Dr Abram performs this surgery under general anaesthetic. Dr Abram is kind, gentle & professional. I had very little swelling and pain. Dr Abrams aftercare service is wonderful. Charges for treatment - either Medical Aids pay TOO little or Periodontists charge too much, but the amount difference is substantial! Even though treatment is beyond most people's price bracket, I needed him & glad I found him. Even his staff is wonderful. Its a Small office and professional. Kind staff. It's a warm inviting environment and decorated well :) I was referred by another periodontist secretary but I did find this practice on Google first.

Rating from 5 Reviews Settled for dentures after consultationBernie, Estcourt Kzn, 04 Sep 15

Wanted a quote for dental implants. Doctor took her time to diagnose and explain the problems and procedure to rectify in detail. This was good value for this treatment. Price was unaffordable. Settled for dentures. From what I read on the internet they seemed very professional. The clinic has a very warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and worked well together to make me feel relaxed and comfortable.
